The Kingdom of Beornia was founded on the Silver River in 1658 by Northern English immigrants fleeing the prosecution of Protestants in the Dual Monarchy. The Reformed Anglican Church was founded in the 16th Century as part of the Protestant Revolution, spurred on by the Protestant Union of Scandinavia. In 1553, Edouard V passed the Edict of Cantorbéry which established state tolerance of Protestantism as well as the autonomy of both the Irish and English provinces of the Crown.

However, the ascension to the throne of Francois I in 1589 put an end to the trend of autonomy and tolerance of the isles. In order to discourage Burgundian and Scandiavian (Two strong Protestant powers) influence in the region, Francois rescinded the Edict, sparking the Wars of Religion, which ended in 1656. The end result was the outlawing of the Reformed Church of England and the creation of the Saxon Society a secret cabal of Protestant nobles who planned an exodus for the faithful.

The Society and many other English Protestants fled to the region of New Anglia (now called Avalon,) south of the Burgundian colony of Nouvelle Amsterdam at the mouth of the then-named Riviere de l’Argent. The region was nominally claimed by the Anglo-French, but with already many colonies, and wishing to be rid of the Anglicans once and for all, the Crown did not protest the formation of the so-called Kingdom of Beornicia. (Which over time became 'Beornia') John Cavendish, the leader of the Father Pilgrims as they began to be called crowned himself Edward I of England-in-Exile, and founded the House of Beornia.

The kingdom then remained in obscurity for the next 200 years only trading with the Incans and Burgundians to their north and receiving a paltry trickle of immigrants from England. The Beornians slowly pushed north to the Ċācco and west to the Enttīs, and eventually south to Newe Cornweal. The only major conflict not involving the natives was the short-lived War of [New] English succession, where Duke Henry of Godwinson rose up in 1759 against his cousin, the infant king Harold II and his regent, Sir Peter Byrne. Henry was defeated in 1760 and then executed by the loyalists, with Sir Byrne receiving the Duchy of Godwinson as a reward for his loyalty.

During the Lotharingian War of Independence, Arthur IV, the Enlightenment-educated King supported the Burgundian colony against its masters, cementing an alliance that would last until the fall of De Aigle's dictatorship in 1839. Edward IV succeeded his father in 1817, returning from his European Education enamored with Bohemian Absolutism and ended any attempts for the time being to liberalize the nation. Edward IV was overthrown in a palace coup in 1843 after he attempted to tender a declaration of war with the resurgent Incan Empire.

The nation democratized during the reign of Edward IV's successor, Henry II, who also forged an alliance with the Amazonians and the Incans. He also opened immigration to all Europeans, regardless of whether or not they spoke English or were Protestant. Henry II died in 1892 Being succeeded by his Grandson Harold IV who presided over the nation during the Communard Revolution that overthrew the Amerigan Federation to the nation's north in 1915.

It is 1923 and while the world teeters on the Brink of destruction, the Beornian nation stands strong and proud of its heritage. No one knows what the next century will bring, but given how eventful the last century was, it will certainly be interesting...

Konstantinos XI, 1445-1463

  • We suffered an outbreak of tuberculosis on the fleet following a great storm that claimed the life of John VIII and many others
  • In a [relatively] reserved ceremony, Constantine XI married the daughter of a nobleman, Theodora Trellos, who a year later gave birth to an heir, Sophia
  • We broke down the remnants of the fleet to help construct our new capital, Elysia.
  • We focused on expansion of the farms, to feed our people
  • We focused the city guard on defending the farms over the city itself
  • We entered into an alliance with the Powhatan
  • The crown began selling land off to magnate families at normal prices
  • Using tribute from the natives to our north, we paid a tribe of powhatan around Elysian Bay with gold and weapons to move south, toward the Tuscarora
  • An Albanian fleet, led by Skanderbeg arrived in Elysia, and we allowed to join the Empire, settling in the border region between the Bay and the Tuscarora
  • A coalition of chieftains sent a treaty to the Emperor, requesting his assistance in helping them maintain their homes against incursion by the landholding nobles. Because of our policy of focusing on the farms, we refused this treaty and directly seized the petitioner’s villages
  • Someone suggested carving pathways across the mountains to our West, The ápsálákí
  • A project was successful in rebuilding a merchant class, allowing trade to get back into full swing
  • Complete control over the Elysian Bay has allowed us to begin charging a toll through the “Seagate” of Didymo Fylakes
  • After many years, naptha supplies began to run low, which required us to reserve it for fortifications over ships
  • The Albanians spread further to the west, toward the mountains, and south toward the Catawba
